Traditional Remedy for Boils


Mash soap and sugar together to form a paste and transfer the mixture onto a piece of lint big enough to cover the boil. Use a bandage (if a large boil) or a large plaster/band-aid to secure the piece of lint onto the boil. The mixture should draw out the boil's core. Best of luck!

Boils are a staph infection. I don't think you should use home remedies on them. Please see a doctor and get proper treatment.

Ppl been doctoring boils for a hundred + yrs with home remedies & lived to pass the knowledge on.
I wouldn't suggest pricking or lancing one & using raw egg bc of the bacteria, but other than that why not save 180.oo

Wow, will have to try that. We take a cotton ball and soak it in peroxide and apply with a tape or bandaid covering and it draws it to a head.

Not all boils are staph infections, Boils can be caused by a number of factors, Eating foods high in fatty acids, ingrown hairs that go undetected, having too tight of pants on and the band rubs the same area daily; if you have ever ridden horse back the saddle can rub the same area as well causing a boil to form.


If this remedy works and I am not saying it doesn't, purchasing a snake bite kit can be helpful. Clean the infected area with Betadine or alcohol, take a sterilized sewing needle and ever so lightly and gentle just prick the top of the boil. The boil will then begin to ooze, apply the snake bite venom sucker (for a lack of a better word) over the boil, it will then suck the entire infection within the boil out, bandage area with gauze and antibiotic salve.

As well there is a salve made and called "Draw Out" place a generous amount of the salve over the boil and bandage to prevent clothing from being soiled. By morning all is needed ia a simple band-aide.

There are cysts that can appear to be a boil from the surface but it is not. A cyst has a core that needs to be removed by a physician, then packed with gauze and changed daily. For this an oral antibiotic is mandatory. It is extremely important to know the difference.
